Start with theis Kb article. Link) Come back if nothing there works. Be careful if you update the firmware for your burner; if you don't follow the directions you could end up with a rectangular door stop.

Hello, I followed the link you suggested and it clearly says that "Updating your firmware can be risky business, even if the update comes from the manufacturer of your drive. Improper firmware for your drive can, and usually does, result in destruction of the drive." So how can this be a way to solve the problem if I am going to end up with a new one.

 

I am sure it is me not understanding this properly but could you explain this a bit further or suggest another course of action.

 

Many thanks once more.

Where are you going to get the "improper firmware" ?

 

Edit: beg, borrow or buy an external USB connected burner and try burning to that. If it doesn't you have other issues or your original drive is bad.

I'm confused..

 

Is Onimac burning a Image file to the hard disk?

 

Or is Onimac burning a Image file from the hard disk to a DVD?

 

I'm easily confused. :unsure: I thought that he was burning to a DVD; that is why I suggested a USB connected burner. Yep, in the first post, he said he was burning to a DVD.

 

Edit OOps; guess I should have said driver for the burner. Or suggested that the burner be removed from the system using Windows Device Manager, then reboot the computer to reinstall or to check to make sure that the drivers are up to date and/or let's not forget what type of discs is the device caspable of handling ! (sheepish grin). :wacko:

Can you clarify how can I resolve this?

Hello, had not seen this post. Not very good at knowing this stuff but I'll do my best.

1) What computer do you have? Both manufacturer and exact model number. PC AMD 64 Athlon put together by a friend 5 years ago.

2) Have you updated all the drivers for it from the manufacturer's web site? I tried to find out manufacturer's name but get an error when trying to access the DVD RW using one of the links I think you kindly provided. Error said "The Archive is in unknown format or damaged"

3) How much free defragged space on your system drive; lots is not an answer. Sorry don't know at this point but will find out and let you know.

4) have you tried to remove or fix the program. Are you getting any mess ages when you do so? Yes removed it totally and installed it again following as much as I could the instructions from Roxio.

5) What are you trying to burn? Clips from a video camera into a film using Roxio.

6) What type of disc are you trying to burn to? Maxwell 120 min video DVD-R

7) What application within Creator 2010 are you trying to use - Create DVD, Video Copy and Convert, Roxio Burn, other? Create DVD

8) Have you tried to burn something else (especially if it is video). This is the first thing I am burning since a friend replaced our hard disk when it partially burned a few months ago. I suspect, having read all you have sent earlier that at least the DVD RW drive is/ are not formatted for video. I could be totally wrong.

9) Do you use a registry cleaner? DOn't know what that is.

10) What anti-virus are you using and was it active when you did the install.ZoneAlarm Security Suite

11) Did you try doing the suggestions in your other posts? I tried to follow the links suggested and thats why I think it is something to do with the video rw drive.

12) Have you tried to burn to an external USB connected drive? No

13) Please post a step by step description of what you are doing. I will try but if I many could you let me know if you also suspect is the DVD RW drive not functioneing?

Many thanks for your and everyone's help here. It is really appreciated. Delay in response due to illness.

Hello cd and thank you for helping me. I did do the steps you say above.

I think I know what the problem is but still don't know how to solve it. I think it is something to do with the video rw drive. I got that conclusion following some instructions in above posts to update the drives before re-installing. It cannot be updated.

 

In another post I saw these questiosn and I have answered the best I could.

1) What computer do you have? Both manufacturer and exact model number. PC AMD 64 Athlon put together by a friend 5 years ago. Using Creator 2010 Pro and my operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit/

2) Have you updated all the drivers for it from the manufacturer's web site? I tried to find out manufacturer's name but get an error when trying to access the DVD RW using one of the links I think you kindly provided. Error said "The Archive is in unknown format or damaged"

3) have you tried to remove or fix the program. Are you getting any mess ages when you do so? Yes removed it totally and installed it again following as much as I could the instructions from Roxio.

4) What are you trying to burn? Clips from a video camera into a film using Roxio.
